Many Sacramento park amenities will remain open during the latest 'stay home' order. Here's why…
A new public-health order has been released for Sacramento that requires people to stay home as much as possible. But for many, enjoying the outdoors is a much-needed relief during the pandemic -- something they can continue to do under the new order. Released by Sacramento County on Dec. 9, the order aligns with the State's "Regional Stay Home" order, which hopes to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed by a recent surge of COVID-19 cases.The order, which lasts for three weeks, takes effect Dec. 10 at 11:59 p.m. and was triggered when capacity at intensive care units was reduced to 15 percent in the greater Sacramento region. It restricts certain business and leisure to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

What does this mean for Youth, Parks, and Community Enrichment?

Community Centers and Hart Senior Center remain closed to the public; only registered participants and essential staff will be permitted.
Limited in-person/on-site Childcare/Youth On-line Learning support programs that are considered essential services will continue with safety protocols in place. This include Sac CLASS,      Rec Express, and Teen Scene at Community Centers.
Holiday Drive Thru Events at Community Centers are postponed until further notice.
Outdoor recreational facilities such as playgrounds, picnic shelters, sports fields, open door skateparks, basketball courts and tennis courts remain open to facilitate physically
distanced personal health and wellness through outdoor exercise.
Gatherings of any size outside of households is still not permitted.

"We were pleased to see outdoor recreational facilities stay open during the latest public-health order and ask that everyone follow COVID-19 safety guidelines when visiting," said Mario Lara, the City's director of Youth, Parks and Community Enrichment department. "Keep you and your loved ones safe by wearing a face covering, staying six feet apart and washing your hands."

Lara says that people should stay close to home when visiting a park. "Remember to avoid unnecessary travel and stick to the parks in your immediate neighborhood."
